Fiji Mermaid is a singer-songwriter who has received a positive response performing her music in various venues. Fiji sang in choir and church choir in college, studied voice, and after college played in a punk/noise band on keyboards and backup vocals. After several years she left the band, moved to a quiet living space, and became a singer-songwriter person.
Fiji has released three albums and one EP of her original compositions. Her new album, "Colors That Shine," has folk songs and introspective lyrics, but also explores diminished chords for a jazzier sound on some of the songs.
Her songs have been played on college radio stations and she has performed at New Langton Arts in San Francisco, among other venues.
